Baseball Rankings: South Hills regains top spot after a pair of grand slams


Tribune Top Ten Baseball Rankings
1. South Hills (8-2) — Karlos Morales and Quinn Cotter both belted grand slams in separate wins last week, Morales’ blast came in a 5-2 win over Bonita.
2. Bonita (10-1) — The San Gabriel Valley tourney champs had been perfect until a 5-2 loss to South Hills.
3. Sierra Vista (8-1) — Impressive non-league wins over Monrovia and Alhambra and 3-0 in the Montview.
4. Walnut (6-2-1) — Even with loss of pitcher Cody Dye for the season, Mustangs still 3-0 in Hacienda and looking the part.
5. Glendora (8-5) — Rough 1-2 start in the Palomares mirrors the slow start the Tartans had last year before bouncing back.
6. Damien (3-4) — Spartans have played a tough schedule, but record still should be better.
7. Bishop Amat (4-7) — As bad as it looks overall, Lancers still 2-0 in the Del Rey League.
8. Covina (5-3) — Perfect 3-0 in the Valle Vista which includes a 3-0 win over Wilson
9. Wilson (5-1) — Wildcats with a big 6-4 win over Northview which followed a 3-0 loss to Covina
10. Northview (7-3-1) — Had looked impressive until a 6-4 loss to Wilson, but probably still Valle Vista league favorites.

    Whom do you have figuring out your B.A.’s. Donald Trump?

    • FredJ

      Trump would have them about 3, I dropped them in at 7 knowing they would crush anyone in the Valle Vista

      • AMAT73

        Fred J ,
        I believe reality was questioning your B=batting A=average not AMAT’s placement here ,” we know who’s on your mind ” , first player 9 for 20 is not .529 , more like .450 , 10 for 20 would be .500 so how is number 3 at 9 for 21, batting .500 ?????? maybe time for a math refresher course !!!!!

        Cool your jets, bud. Got a little defensive there when you think someone is questioning your judgement on Bishop Amat. Either double-checking before posting or using a calculator would be a good idea, next time you update the rankings (which should be like the week before playoffs start). I just don’t understand how these are the second rankings of the season and April has almost started…

        I should have saved my post for April 1st. Some times my posts sail right over Fred’s head’s. Thanks 73
